“If you can believe it, then you can achieve it”, said David’s teacher after hearing David expressing his desire for becoming a top scientist one day. David’s heart was set. He could see it.

Here we are – 90 days of being 100% decaffeinated

They say it takes 66 days to truly ingrain a habit, so by my reckoning, doing (or undoing) something for 90 days is a profound milestone as by the 90 day mark you’re now at a 2:3 ratio of what is required, and where you actually are. 90 days is also 25 % of an…
